Mining Sand from the Batang Hari River
http://wp.me/pdZo0-PF The Batang Hari River provides many benefits for the people of the Jambi Province. Not only does it contain fish, it also has sand and gravel, that is dredged out (often by hand) to be used for making construction. The river also contains a significant amount of gold. The Batang Hari River is the longest on the island of Sumatra, around 500 miles long. The source of the river is from the far western mountain range in the Jambi Province, known as the Bukit Barisan (row of hills). The video shows workers bringing a barge laden with sand to the bank of the river, which was then unloaded by hand. It is starting to become common to see heavy equipment used in these types of jobs, which is also reflected in the video.

Cupping / Blood Letting in Indonesia
http://wp.me/pdZo0-25c This medical practice is common in Asia and the Middle East. It is believed that if an area of the body hurts, it's probably because there are dead red blood cells there and they need to be removed. The practice of cupping will remove these dead blood cells. Although Islam has hadiths that suggest this practice is profitable, people of all religions in Indonesia believe there are medical benefits from the practice.

http://wp.me/pdZo0-S7 This video shows the grave of "Nyi Mas Rahima," or as she is commonly known today, "Putri Ayu." There is a strong belief that her grave has "keramat," or spiritual power. Information from the caretakers at the grave of Putri Ayu indicate that no less than five people visit the grave every day. They pray for health, a spouse, fertility, employment, beauty, or any need they may have. Originally the grave of Putri Ayu was located just south of the former Dutch fort, which since was transformed into a public water tower, with the name of "PDAM Tirta Mayang." Due to the need to widen the road at that location, the remains were said to have been moved to Kemboja Street in 1980.

Dutch Graveyard in the City of Jambi
http://wp.me/pdZo0-I7 On the N.W. side of the Makalam bridge, in the City of Jambi, there is a graveyard that contains the remains of a number of Dutch, Japanese, American, and Chinese graves. The official name of the graveyard is "Makam Belanda (Kerkhof)." The literal translation from bahasa Indonesia into English, of the first two words is "grave" and "Dutch." The third word, "Kerkhof," is a Dutch word, and using an online translator, we discovered it to mean "cemetery." We looked diligently for the oldest and the most recent tomb stone, and the oldest we found was dated 1918, which was that of "Elisabeth Victoria Clementine." The most recent we found was a 5 year old child, buried in 1987, whose first name was "Tamas" (probably a derivative of "Thomas"). The size of the graveyard is a little under 1 acre. At this time many of the graves have fallen into disrepair, and only a handful of the writings on the tombstones are legible. It is evident that many of the people who are buried there were not soldiers or representatives of the Dutch colonial authority, but were perhaps descendants of the Dutch, who chose to remain in Jambi after Indonesia gained its independence in 1945.

Japanese Bunker
http://wp.me/pdZo0-Hz WWII INVASION OF JAMBI: During WWII the Japanese Imperial forces entered the Indonesian islands, supposedly to free them from Dutch colonial domination. The Jambi Province of Indonesia was not exempt from the Japanese incursion. There were no significant battles fought in Jambi, but the Japanese did take over the area and set up a heavy gun emplacement on the eastern edge of the airport. The airport (Bandara Udara Sultan Thaha Syaifudin) is located in the southern part of the City of Jambi. The airport was built during the Dutch colonial time period. The bunker is positioned very strategically at the highest elevated piece of land in the area, with a clear view of the surrounding area. Link to satellite photo of the bunker. The bunker is made with very thick concrete walls, with three openings facing the airstrip, giving the guns a clear line of fire. At the top of the bunker are four ventilation pipes.
